Over the years Las Vegas has been known for many things…including magicians. Siegfried and Roy and David Copperfield are some of the most famous Las Vegas magic acts. More recently fans of magic have taken to illusionist Criss Angel. As you know his show Mindfreak has moved to Planet Hollywood.
Mindfreak coming to Planet Hollywood started a Caesars Entertainment show shuffle. Having two magic shows at the same casino doesn’t make much sense so Xavier Mortimer’s show had to relocate. “Magical Dream” is now down the street at Bally’s.
There was an empty entertainment slot at Bally’s when Wayne Newton’s show moved to another Caesars Entertainment property. You can now catch “Up Close And Personal” at Cleopatra’s Barge inside Caesars Palace. Whew! That’s a lot of moving parts.
Xavier Mortimer’s Magical Dream
Xavier Mortimer’s “Magical Dream” will expand to a larger stage and showroom with its move to Bally’s Las Vegas’ 250-seat Windows Showroom. Magical Dream will also introduce astounding new visuals than the Sin City Theater at Planet Hollywood.
Mortimer began performing on the Las Vegas Strip in 2013 when he joined Cirque du Soleil’s acclaimed production, Michael Jackson One. He is the first performer from a Cirque du Soleil production to headline his own show on the Las Vegas Strip. After Cirque, Mortimer started “Magical Dream” at Planet Hollywood in 2016.
The 70-minute production depicts Mortimer’s dream world and his quest to win the affection of his love interest, Belle, played by Allie Sparks. The show has 14 acts of spellbinding illusions, eccentric characters, dancing, and animations. The show is set to an original soundtrack composed by Mortimer and Maxime Rodriguez.
The move to Windows Showroom will allow Xavier Mortimer’s Magical Dream to expand. The show will introduce extraordinary new visuals. Even though there’s a bigger room the show will continue to offer multiple opportunities to invite audience participation.
“We are thrilled to continue our partnership with Caesars Entertainment by bringing the show to a new and larger stage to showcase Xavier’s astounding illusions,” said Alex Goude, international celebrity and writer and director of Xavier Mortimer’s Magical Dream. “It certainly feels like a magical dream come true.”
